ESOP Association President Comments on the Passing of Carolyn B. Long

Wife of former Senator Russell B. Long of Louisiana

July 28, 2015 (Washington, DC) – ESOP Association President, J. Michael Keeling, issued the following statement today upon learning of the passing of Carolyn B. Long, wife of former Senator Russell B. Long of Louisiana:

“On behalf of the entire employee ownership community, I express gratitude and admiration for the life and work of Carolyn Long on behalf of Americans having more ownership of productive assets through the Employee Stock Ownership model. Without a doubt, the masterful legislative skills of her husband, Senator Russell B. Long, laid down the foundation for our nation’s growing interest in having more Americans be among the owners of the companies where they work; but, Carolyn was a stalwart in advising the Senator, and in urging the Senator to continue his work for all citizens working in the private sector. She bolstered his fortitude to continue his work for employee ownership when so many were skeptical of the power of average pay Americans to improve our economy, and their lives.”
